I know I shouldn't post when drinking but I have just been watching the news! Another soldier dead in Afganistan and the press have managed to get a grieving mother to state that "our boys shold not be there!" God that makes me angry, press scum go along to a grieving mother and get her to make a political statement, then splash it all over the news. Like that Glasgow woman who tried to sue the MOD(not that I have any time for that bunch of crooks!) for not keeping her son safe - he was in the infantry. Compare that to the dignified response from many parents recently saying their son died doing what he wanted to do, in the service of his country. You're in the army - you don't decide where you serve or if you want be there, the government do that -right or wrong. Aren't the press such scumbags? I am glad that in the past I have managed to screw them up once or twice!
